    AC1 got a reaction from Dixon Hill in Interstellar (2014 film directed by Christopher Nolan)   
    At least it's about real people, believable situations and everyday things. I prefer it to the beautiful glamorous phoney people and phoney situations of Friends. At the time, I liked it very much and I'm not surprised Joey thinks it's stupid.

    AC1 got a reaction from Sharkissimo in Williams' worst cue   
    Cheesy (as in poor, low and cheap quality?) It's very cleverly written Jazz Fusion with perhaps an overly happy flute part. I mainly love what the piano, guitar and the drums are doing here... the interplay between the instruments, the chords, the odd placement ... Nothing cheesy about that! So Williams (in this mode) turns you off? He turns me on, no matter the musical style or form he writes in.

    I love Banning Back Home! He surely showed folks like Dave Grusin how it should be done. Why can't Williams write a whole CD like that?!

    Absolutely ... and probably Gone Girl too, even though I haven't seen it yet, it's only an assumption based on the ordinariness of the premise. I do like Panic Room more than The Game ... but that's a matter 'connection' with the material (Panic Room) and with 'suspension of disbelief' that is being challenged (The Game).

    Skyfall: A fantastic Bond trip, every scene is great ... that is ... until Bond gets back from Hashima Island (best location I've seen in years) with Silva (Bardem). From then on, the film loses me (and it starts to cry because of it). BTW, the ending/climax in Scotland is sorta a rip off from Weir's Witness, but I guess you already knew that, right? It's even filmed in the same way. Also, I love that fact that from now on Ralph Fiennes is the new M. 7/10

    Ah, you need longer performances to get that Candy can do more. I don't. I can even see it in Trains, Planes and Automobiles that Candy has a broader pallet than Martin. Of course, Candy, for obvious reasons, had a very short career compared to Martin.
    Martin: "Candy was a brilliant actor."

    Martin could never do this!

    He's known for his mindfuck movies but I actually like his 'normal' movies like The Elephant Man, The Straight Story, ... Oh yeah, one bit of advise, don't let Dune be your first David Lynch movie.

    Hook is hardly considered to be a classic either.

    Looks funny! Actually, after There Will Be Blood and The Master, it was about time PTA lightened up a bit.

    Oh yes!
    It's a movie that impresses on the first viewing but it doesn't have anything new to say on the second. Also, the whole movie's foundation (sending a group of soldiers through a war zone to find one private) is a sentimental lie.

    AC1 got a reaction from Not Mr. Big in Raiders of the lost Ark in B&W with modern music (A Soderbergh project)   
    Eh ... he removed the color and sound because he wants people to pay attention to the brilliant staging. He forgot about staging and so he watches Raiders to educate himself.

    Photo 2 and 3 are normal photos and show how it will look when you and I take a photo with a iPhone 6. The others are either HDR (consisting of 3 photos with different exposure times put together with special software) or panorama (consisting of 3 photos of different regions in the landscape) and are severely post-processed.

    Hmm, I think we all know about the running gag between Abrams and Snyder, Jason. It's been going on for time now.

    That's the cue with the low choir voices, right?
    Oh, yes, I did not like the Emperor's lightning bolts either. Sure, now I gotten used to it, but at first, I thought it was cheap.

    Bishop is just a likable robot. He's Data. The only interesting character moment in Aliens is the commander who lost it in a panic situation. That was unexpected and shows how easily it would be for the group to fall apart. Luckily for them, they got Ripley, a woman to lead the crying macho men through hell.

    Yes, definitely watch the sequel too. But not right away, give yourself some time to recover.

    Well, if Schindler's List used a sweeping love story to make the public realize the tragedy of the drama, it would've been a chick flick too. I felt the romance (a puppy love romance, no less) overpowered the drama.
    IMO, of course.
